cut off your hands and get kissed

    Back in November of 2007, Nick Johnston broke his leg on the last night of touring with the Foals. It was a magnificent leap, some 15 feet off a balcony, resulting in a hospital visit after the show. And yet, somehow, Cut Off Your Hands' rowdy lead singer found a way to finish his band's set. It's ape shit antics and attention grabbing situations like these that have lead audiences to expect nothing less than a great fucking time anytime he and his band churn it out live.

    So, knowing this, I suppose the next bit of news probably won't come as much of a surprise. Frenchkiss Records - the sonic home of bands like Les Savy Fav, Thunderbirds are Now, and the Dodos - have decided to join forces with these crazy Kiwis...a partnership I'm sure will lead to plenty of great things.

    Like any new relationship, it's best to start slow. In this case, the label will digitally release the band's newest EP, Happy As Can Be on October 21st. Expect their full-length, You and I, to drop sometime early next year (though you can preview one song off of the record by checking out the recent video they filmed for Expectations). The band also have a few dates scheduled, including a few stops at this year's CMJ festival. Can't make any of those dates? Check out the video we filmed of them at last year's CMJ, below. - xavier bustos
